Proposed Telephone to Dromore.

A largely attended public meeting was held iv the Dromore sahoolroom on Saturday evening to consider the question of telephonic connection with Aahburton. Mr T. D'% was appointed Chairman, and Mr W. C. Smith Secretary.

Several speakers referred to the advantages of such a service, and gave instances of loss and of rorrow that had arisen through delayed communication.

Correspondence was submitted showing that annual charges for maintenance, interest on cost of construction, salary, etc., would amount to about 7s, and for this a guarantee would be required for a period of fire years. The opinion was freely expressed that the Government should encourage the settlers iv country di&tricts by granting such facilities without harassing conditions of guarantee, etc.

Eventually it decided, on the motion of Mr L. Han rah ad, seconded by Mr J. Allen, to petition the County Council t > take the necessary steps towards obtaining the proposed connection. A guarantee list for the annual charges was drawn up and signed by a number of residents. The signatures of a few residents, not present but known to be in sympathy, are to be obtained, and the guarantee will then be forwarded to the County Counoil.
